Share Investor Portfolio: Taking a beating

I haven't visited the old Share Investor Portfolio for a while to see how it is shaping up over all this global turmoil in our stockmarkets but I suspect it has taken more than a battering.

It might be good to share this with my readers so they can compare how well or indeed how badly they have done.

The biggest part of the portfolio, Sky City Entertainment [SKC.NZ] has dropped to NZ$2.91 as of today, Mainfreight Ltd [MFT.NZ] hovers just above 5 dollars , Fletcher Building Ltd [FBU.NZ] is below 5 bucks. Pumpkin Patch Ltd [PPL.NZ] is well below its IPO price of $1.25 and everything else bar Fisher and Paykel Healthcare [FPH.NZ] has had a good thrashing.

Including dividends, brokerage costs and tax credits the portfolio is down 0.75% .

So far it has withstood the riggers of the market rort but more bad news could come yet.
